Come to Gather Thank You

Hello Stampers!

I initially purchased three packages of Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. It’s filled with an array of fall themes and images, but I never thought I’d use it all. Well, I did. And, I’m waiting for two additional packages to arrive next week. Today, I wanted to create some thank you cards to send to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and was forced to create something with just the scraps I had. This is the result.

I CASEd the layout and design from a card I received from Kathryn Collison for World Card Sending Week. In addition to the Come to Gather DSP, I used the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and the limited-time only Gold Shimmer Ribbon. The colors of the card stock are Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. Just a quick and easy card that’s oh so pretty in person.

Click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store where you can purchase any of the products to create this card at home. Shoot me an email or message if you need help with dimensions, colors, or technique.

Thanks for stopping by today!

June Challenge: #simplestamping

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia #simplestamping

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia #simplestamping

Hello Stampers!

A new Stampin’ Up! catalog is so exciting! It’s always hard to know what to order first. The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coordinating Magnolia Memory Dies and Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper were the first on my list.

I love large images that become the focus of the card. It makes it easy to create a quick, but still beautiful card, without a lot of fuss and thought.

Stampin’ Up! is challenging us to get back to the basics of stamping: rubber stamps, ink, and paper. This card qualifies for that, and the two-time stamping technique just adds a bit of dimension.

Here’s how this card came together:

Petal Pink Card Stock: Base–8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half. 4 1/4 x 3

Very Vanilla: 5 1/4 x 4 and 4 x 2 3/4

Apply a tiny bit of SNAIL onto the back of the small vanilla piece. Place on top of the large vanilla piece, trying your best to center. Ink the Magnolia stamp with Soft Suede ink. Stamp the image on the top of both pieces of Very Vanilla while they are stuck together. For this card, I tried to stamp the image farther to the left to leave room for the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment with Soft Suede. While the pieces are still together, apply Petal Pink ink (with a sponge) to the flowers and Soft Sea Foam to the leaves. Gently remove  the top Very Vanilla piece. Adhere it to the 4 1/4 x 3 Petal Pink paper. Carefully match up the images and adhere to the Very Vanilla and finally, the base.

Good Morning Magnolia

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Hello Stampers!

There’s so much to love in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2019-2020 annual Catalog that debuts June 4. The Magnolia Lane Suite is absolutely gorgeous and can be used for many occasions. In addition to the Enjoy Today sentiment used in today’s cards, other greetings include: Thanks, Thinking of You, Hello as well as some great inside verses.

I’ve used a Soft Suede base that measures 4 1/4 by 8 1/2 and folded. The Petal Pink panel is 4 1/8 x 4 1/8. I stamped the magnolia image in Soft Suede ink on to a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 4 x 4. I applied Petal Pink ink to the flowers and Soft Sea Foam ink on the leaves with Stampin’ Sponges. I then cut the image into three equal pieces and attached them to the Petal Pink base. The sentiment in stamped in Soft Suede ink and trimmed with a snips. I sponged a bit of color onto the sentiment. The card is finished off with Linen Trim.

This suite also includes the Magnolia Memory Dies, the Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder, and the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Look also for coordinating ribbon, Memories and More Card Pack and Specialty Cards and Envelopes and cork embellishments.

I can’t wait for the new catalog to go live June 4. If you don’t already have a demonstrator and want a catalog, message me and I’ll get one in the mail.

Happy stamping!

Kim
